Hawthorn has claimed the AFL's minor premiership for the first time since 1989 with victory over West Coast at the MCG. The Hawks booted 7 goals to 1 in the opening quarter including 4 to key forward 'Buddy' Franklin. The Eagles finished strongly with a 5-goal final quarter but Hawthorn held on for the 25-point win. COMMENTATOR: Finals-type intensity, lots of pressure, great tackling by both sides. A fierce contest. Both the big Essendon-Collingwood and Geelong-Sydney games are on Seven and 7mate today. The great Petro Civoniceva has come away with a fitting win in his last-ever home game at Suncorp Stadium.

Sydney FC says with Italian superstar Alessandro Del Piero poised to join the club. The Sky Blues believe they're in the box seat ahead of several European sides looking to land the World Cup winner's signature but manager and brother Stefano says the deal isn't done yet. The deal, reportedly worth close to $2 million, would make Del Piero the highest-paid footballer in this country. A rapid-fire 61 from Mike Hussey guided the Aussies to a competitive 9/248 in the second one day international with Pakistan at Abu Dhabi. But in reply, Pakistan's top order have smashed the Australian bowlers. They were at a commanding 167/2 only a short time ago.

Maddison Elliott became our youngest ever Paralympic medallist with bronze in the 100 fly. She is just 13 years old. Earlier, cyclists Felicity Johnson and Stephanie Morton won gold in the 1k time trial. , We are second on the medal tally going very nicely. In training already for Brazil in 2016 is Nuala haifener this morning. This is a first for me. Not being on a treadmill. I did do that about five years ago I think but doing weather on a treadmill. Clearly my spring health kick is beginning five years ago I think but doing the

today. This is actually a treadmill athon. It's like a 24 hour treadmill challenge and it's to raise money for the very special kids piggy bank appeal. If you haven't heard of very special kids, they do very important work, caring for children with life threatening illness all these people have gone from noon, just under 5 hours to go, all these people are being sponsored to object these treadmills, including me, I don't think I'm giving them their money

worth. I did plan to do this cross running but it turns out, not that practical for me. I might just slow it down , Is it wrong that when they reach their 24 hour finale, they get a cake? A very special cake. Is it wrong that I was looking at that before I got on the treadmill a little bit. - hey, enough, enough. Enough, that is so mean. Another 20 minutes and I get cake. Cake at the end of the treadmill is the only way to do it. You hang a cake from the roof in the middle of the room so everybody is running towards it. I need to congratulate Nuala on her outfit. It's like a down the bottom but I'm going out. The party is on out. And full make-up at the gym. You can't even see her pantiness. I like I You can't even see her pantiness. I like to congratulate her on inventing a new word " inventing a new word "pantiness" inventing a new word "pantiness". I think pantiness just got the better of me. I was doing very well. Still to come, the call to combine the Olympics and Paralympics to stop discrimination. And why women are vowing to "submit" during their marriage vows.

Whoo-hoo! (GRUNTS) Perfect landing. Red Rooster wants to ask me some questions. Marketing. VOICEOVER: OK. Legends or Hawaiian? Limited time, only at Red Rooster. Five more diggers lost their lives, leaving behind grieving family and friends. But what lies ahead for our soldiers there, before we pull out? Dr Keith Suter is our foreign affairs editor. Morning, Keith. Can we do anything to stop the casualties?

, No. - you've got two types of casualities. One was the helicopter coming down but the other one is causing a lot of concern is the issue of friendly fire, green on coming down but the other one which

blue, the western troops are being seen as the blue. The Afghanis are the people wearing the green what we are seeing are people we are training turning the weapons on the NATO and Australian troops. So 14% of the casualities this year have actual by been inflicted under this so-called friendly fire where they are stunning the guns on the western forces. The American brass seem to be passing this off as possibly an inter-personal issue, an argument that escalated out of control but others aren't so sure. They they are Taliban plants. others aren't so sure. They think You've got three explanations one is the American argument, look, these are all localise the conflicts. are all localise the conflicts after are all localise the conflicts Afghanis don't like being given leader. The leader says no, this is the issue of Pakistan and Iran as well as Taliban causing unrest because it's part of the regional chest game that's going on. And own explanation, I think a lot of chest game that's going on. And my people are saying the westerners are leaving at the end of 2014, I've got to demonstrate to my Taliban colleague that is I was really on their side even though I was wearing a western uniform. In other words, I think we will see an increase in this type of violence. Now, I notice the Prime Minister is saying we are taking additional measures to try to prevent this but this is a real risk for our shoulders, not only our ones but the other NATO forces that are in the country as well. If your explanation is well, it doesn't Bode well, does it The Taliban - it sounds like are ready to flood back in and take off where they left off. They will certainly try to come They will certainly try to come back in but I think obviously you've got a number of after Ghan anies that have lived without the Taliban for a while. We don't want to have you back. When we pull out, we can expect conflict to continue. Gee, it's a terrible situation. OK. The boats of asylum seekers keep arriving, despite the tragedy at sea off Indonesia. What's the latest? , Well, I think what is interesting, an , Well, I think what is interesting, an angle that doesn't get enough attention is a reminder is how large is Australia's air responsibility. We have is Australia's air responsibility. We have got islands when the case of Cocos, for example, that's halfway to Sri Lanka. So, we are actually responsible for about 10% of the earth's surface so you begin at the south Poland move right up to the equator as you can see on that map there. So there is another story here, not only are the asylum seekers trying to get on to any bit of Australian territory, but of course, the concerns of the local people, those on the Cocos, 600 Indigenous Australians, Mal aorigins there, we inherited those from the British empire. We have responsibilities to those people. But their point of view doesn't get much attention. So they are being inundated with asylum seekers. There is also the prospect that the Defence Force might want to use that as a base. Clearly that's a very is also the prospect that the US

important piece of real estate. The shear size of the royal Australian Navy's area of responsibility that, we just assume it's just a handful of islands but it's actually a huge area that we are having to protect. I went up there last week, my story is tomorrow morning on the show Christmas Island and it took us two days to get there. It's only 300ks is tomorrow morning on the show to

off Indonesia and it's our territory. It's no surprises really that these boats come in there because it's a long way from Australia. Next there will be boat loads of Russian scientistss, showing up Macquarie island. We have as many Russian bases in trarkt, as we have American Here we are down the bottom of the world, nothing was going on, it's all happening. How did you think nothing was going on when Keith shows up. The party has arrived. When I hear his key in the dord, wow! We'll be back shortly with the latest news, sport, and weather. in Afghanistan.

Australian forces are leading a man-hunt for the rogue Afghan soldier that killed three Aussies and injured two others at an army patrol base. While the names of the three have been withheld the nation is also mourning two commandos - Lance Corporal Mervyn McDonald and Private Nathanael Galagher who were killed in a helicopter crash. I can just imagine that the whole family would be coming together and offering support to his mum and dad. The Government says Australia is committed to staying in Afghanistan. A strong undersea quake has rocked the Philippines, triggering tsunami warnings as far away as Japan and Papua New Guinea. At least one person was killed when the 7.6 magnitude quake struck off the coast. It's believed one house collapsed and thousands of people were left without power. All tsunami warnings have now been lifted. There is no risk to Australia or New Zealand. A union blockade at the Grocon site in Melbourne's CBD is costing taxpayers at least $5,000 a day. The CFMEU is planning to wind down its presence this weekend but it may resume the blockade next week. Both the union and the company are refusing to back down. The leadership of the CFMEU should make sure they comply with the law. They are not above the law. The Victorian premier has vowed to intervene if the blockade continues. A woman has been extradited from Italy to face court over the murder of Sydney brothers Albert and Mario Frisoli. The men were found stabbed to death at a home in Rozelle, in Sydney's inner-west, three years ago. Italian authorities arrested a 53-year-old woman in July over their deaths. She was escorted to Sydney by New South Wales police last night. She's been charged with two counts of murder and is due to face court today. A disgruntled worker in the US has opened fire on workers at a shopping complex in New Jersey. The 23-year-old entered the store at around 4:00 in the morning, firing up to 16 shots. Two workers were killed before the man turned the gun on himself. The shop was closed but around a dozen staff were working night shift. A Chinese-led consortium has been given the green light to take over Australia's largest privately owned farm and water user. Treasurer Wayne Swan has approved the sale of Cubbie Farm which lies across the New South Wales border in Queensland. The $320 million station has been under administration for three years with the government unable to find an Australian buyer. Mr Swan says water management would not be affected by the sale. Hollywood heart-throb Zac Efron has walked the red carpet in front of hundreds of screaming girls for the premiere of his new movie 'At Any Price' in Venice.

She will look back one day and go, that was me. What was I A 4-goal haul to 'Buddy' Franklin has helped Hawthorn topple West Coast by 25 points at the MCG. Franklin was in show-stopping form as the Hawks crushed the Eagles with a 7-goal-to-1 opening term. Hawthorn withstood a final quarter fight-back from the Eagles with the win enough to secure the minor premiership. COMMENTATOR: No margin for error for the Eagles and that's the problem. A lovely goal-kicker. The Hawks, though, are likely to be without Brent Guerra for next week's home qualifying final after he limped off with a hamstring injury. The Rabbitohs are re-living days of old after getting over the Knights in Newcastle to finish the season in the top four for the first time since 1989. Souths front rower Roy Asotasi made an emphatic return after 20 rounds on the sidelines and Greg Inglis came up with one of the defensive plays of the season to lay the platform for an 18-6 Bunnies triumph. COMMENTATOR: And he'll get it over the line. John Sutton has scored for Souths! And a crowd of 35,000 turned out to Suncorp Stadium to farewell Broncos great Petro Civoniceva in his last home game.

Over to the US Open, and Lleyton Hewitt is locked in an epic 5-set battle with the 6-foot four giant Gilles Muller. The Australian was up 4-3 in the decider a short time ago. Earlier, defending champion Sam Stosur went through to the fourth round after a convincing straight-sets win over American Varvara Lepchenko which she once again celebrated with a shuffle. And, as expected, Novak Djokovic easily accounted for Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva, winning in three. A spectacular day in the pool for our paralympic swimmers with Matt Cowdrey, Ellie Cole and Jacqui Freney all claiming gold.

But that could be easier said than done and the problem might be happiness blockers. Our resident GP, Ginni Mansberg, is here to explain. Ginni, do we really have the ability to sabotage our own happiness? I don't think a lot of us realise we are doing it. People are just letting things get them down. We people are not very good at picking at what will make us happy. We always think it will be winning the lottery or getting pregnant finding a man. I think a lot of people tell you to snap out of it lottery or getting pregnant or

and just be happen and just be happy. You can't manage your own emotions. It's not like you can pick and choose you're motions. It's the thoughts that you have that lead the way you feel. You can muck around with your thoughts. You can actually change the way you are thinking and take charge and make yourself happy so there yourself happy so there are quite a few happiness blockers. , I think when you going through something really bad, your friends gather around you and give you support. After a while, you can attract the bad time friends who trap you you are in a victim. You will gravitate to them, because they make you feel like " make you feel like "poor you" but a really good friend would lift you up out of it. It's time to move on now. It can be really difficult to realise that the people I am hanging out with are trapping me in this bad space. There are other bad energy people. A lot of us are in jobs particularly, in the current financial crisis that we wish we didn't have to be in where there are a lot of toxic environments going on. I see this all the time at work. People breaking down. You may need some professional help if you can't quit your job. , The next one is money. We know for sure, being poor and unable to feed your children or yourself or get adequate care, develop situate a path to unhappiness. Once you hit a certain yourself or get adequate health

threshold and research has told that threshold and research has told that's an income of about 95,000. Once you sort of getting about $ Once you sort of getting about $80,000 a year in income for family, beyond that's you don't increase your happiness. Really. Yeah. So a lot of people put - I will be happy when I win the lottery. I will be happy when I get a pay rise. They obsess so much

money. They stop to enjoy the money and research has shown OK, thinking about the past. How does that affect our happiness? and research has shown that.

You know a lot of people get obsessed about the past, what could have been is a big one. Who did want what to me. You are giving your happiness control to something you can't control any more. Here you are, this is what has happened with

your life.

What about our appearance? Surely, looking good will make you feel better. I know that sounds very shallow but it does help. I think when you look good, you feel good. That definitely works. But then there is a certain point where you end up at the Beau tigs or the plastic surgeon, obsessing about looking better and better and picking holes in yourself. You look in the mirror and nothing is good enough. You are sabotaging your own happiness. We know that catwalk models aren't all that happy. They seem to be less happy than people in wheelchairs, so you can go so far with trying to look perfect and maybe you need to tone it down a bit and be happy with what you've got. We are running out of time, but not being fell being We are running out of time, but not being selfish is the best. Giving giving, being grateful for what you've got.

Weekend Sunrise from 7 am To America now where there's been a big hurricane and a lot of hot air blowing at the Republican convention. , He has packed up his banjo and headed to Nashville. What is the latest on Hurricane Isaac. I thought we would be in the midst of about 2 inches of rain, 5 centimetres of rain right now but it hasn't arrived. It has been springling throughout the day, as

the effects of Isaac, he has been downgraded to a tropical storm now, tropical depression but it is moving inland slowly, cominging to areas like this. It stalled out over New Orleans for the first couple of days and sadly, four people lost their lives, a couple, a man and a woman were found drowned in their house overnight. 50,000 people evacuated when it was feared the dam was about to bust but thankfully that didn't happen. The levees in happen. The levees in New Orleans held up. Now that storm is moving inland. Bringing with it lots of rain, 10 centimetres in some areas. Much of the centre of America has been in the grip of a 40 year drought - a drought that has been the worse in 40 years. They the worse in 40 years. They are hoping that may break it. But time to harvest those crops, but they may have red it. I have a place to go to wait, that's Honourable can I Tonks bar. A lot of music, it's very loud. Sadly we are just passing through. It sounds like a good place to hang around. Did we learn anything new about Mitt Romney during the republic convention? We certainly learned a bit about his wife who was a great hit. Yeah, absolutely, Ann, Romney, a big hit. We have then a bit of a bounce going into the con vehicles, Obama held a very small percentage lead in the national polls. Coming out, that lead now belongs to Romney. It's a bit deceptive. This will be decided in battleground states. This convention was all about seeing the real Mitt. The Democrats have been painting him as agreedy capitalist. They have worked very hard to show the real seeult of Mitt and members of his Mormon Church got up to show how generous he was. There were lots of tears when one couple described how he helped their young dying son write his will. Romney says that Obama has promised to transform America. He will reform America. Let's listen to some of his speech. To the majority of Americans who now believe that the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this. If Obama is re-elected, you will be right. Yes. So, I don't know. Do you think that - has there that - has that - has there been any immediate sign that it has changed people's opinion about what kind of president he might be, Mike? Yeah, that little bounce but I think that will probably be temporary. This is going to go right down to the wire. You know, this is all going to be about the economy, Mitt Romney promised to create 12 million jobs last night. This country certainly needs it. A bizarre appearance ever Clint Eastwood who was the surprise speaker. It was bizarre who gave this monologue next to an empty chair which was meant to represent Obama. Mitt Romney has vowed to take a tougher stance on Russia. Let's hear what he had to say about that. He is eager to give Russia's president Putin the flexibility he desires after the election. Under my administration, our friends will see more loyalty and Mr Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone. He is a very flexible man, Vladimir Putin. It's all that Jujitsu, Mike. He is taking a different tone to the election of Obama four years ago. We will have to see where it takes us. That will have to see where it takes us. That Clint Eastwood thing was so hot. It was look patching a play. Thank you, Mike. Have a good time in Nashville. It showed how good his screen writers are. Yeah, good thing. Thank God for screen writers. Enjoy the As the hunt continues for a rogue Afghan soldier who gunned down three Australians, Julia Gillard says leaving Afghanistan would hand back control to the Taliban.

The construction union says it'll wind down its blockade at the Grocon site in Melbourne this weekend but may step things up again from Monday. The industrial stalemate is dragging on as both sides refuse to back away. Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu has warned he may be forced to step in. and allow the rule of law in Victoria to be trashed by militant union leadership. The Victorian Supreme Court has already ordered the CFMEU to end the blockade. Two people are in hospital with serious injuries after their car slammed into a tree in Sydney's south-west last night. The car was travelling along Railway Parade at Fairfield just after midnight. It came off the road and hit the tree. The driver was able to be rescued and taken to hospital but the passenger was trapped for around two hours. Two women were left with cuts and bruises last night after a truck hit the awning of a building, causing it to collapse. The truck was travelling along Brunswick Street in Brisbane when it hit the building. Wood and debris crumbled onto the footpath. It is a 1-in-1,000 sort of incident and the weight of the awning that fell, the girls are very, very lucky to get away with it. The women were assessed on the scene and are OK. One person is dead and more than 4,000 others have been evacuated as bushfires threaten tourist resorts in the Spanish resort city of Marbella. Authorities are blaming arsonists for the blaze , As far as you can see, the fire ragees. Repping through mile after mile, destroying everything in its path. And now this huge fire has reached Malbella . Going to bring any more. It was absolutely massive. Horrendous, absolutely horrendous and all the time we are thinking, are people - what can we do and then we realise... we realise.... Until conditions change for the fire crews, this must seem like an impossible task. In just a few hours, there was an 8 mile stretch A lot of people who literally grabbed their bags and run. It's scary, very scary but you know, what can do you? You can just pray and hope that the fire doesn't spread. For the thousands spread out of their homes, sports Halls have been turn food evacuation centres. It's somewhere to sleep but little comfort when everything you own is at risk. There are hundreds of firefighters on the ground while helicopters dump tonnes of water from above. Their best hope is that the wind changes before even more the wind changes before even more is destroyed. Australian authorities have called off the search for more survivors from the latest asylum seeker boat disaster. 55 people have been plucked from the water and taken to Indonesia. But the survivors say around 100 others didn't make it. That includes children, women and children. We screamed but nobody respond. The survivors will be processed in Indonesia. A giant sand sculpture of John Lennon has been unveiled in Lithuania to mark the opening of the country's annual arts festival.

Hawthorn has secured the AFL's minor premiership with a 25-point win over West Coast at the MCG. The Hawks fired early with 7-goal-to-1 first quarter to lead by 38 at half time but were lucky to hold on after a stirring comeback from the Eagles in the last quarter. COMMENTATOR: They're just a tough side to keep down for four quarters and that's what we're going to find in all the games from this point on. Depending on results, Hawthorn could face either Collingwood or a re-match with West Coast in next week's home qualifying final. Brisbane's Petro Civoniceva has left Suncorp Stadium a winner in his last ever home game against his former club, the Panthers. As usual, the big prop set the platform for the Broncos as they prized a 7-point win from a tough match almost guaranteeing them a finals berth. Just so grateful for all the support over the years and nothing better than playing out here. And in Newcastle, the Rabbitohs dug deep against Wayne Bennett's Knights to win 18-6 and finish in the top four. They're now likely to face off against the Storm in a Melbourne final next weekend.

The London Olympics inspired the world last month. Now, it's the Paralympics' turn. , Some would say they are even more inspirational. The question is, should the two events be separator together in one big celebration of sport? Let's ask Graeme Innes who is Australia's Disability Discrimination Commissioner and former Paralympic swimmer, Karni Liddell. Good morning to both of you. Graeme, do you think the Paralympics being separate from the Olympics creates discrimination? I wouldn't go so far to say it creates discrimination but EU hit creates discrimination but EU creates discrimination but I think it's unfortunate that they are separate. I think it would be good to have them together. And frankly, with our Paralympians, performing more strongly than our Olympians on this occasion, we probably put some more medals in the cupboard. It does seem sort of arbitrary they are separate, doesn't it? But I guess how would it work in - just in It does seem sort of arbitrary that

practical terms, Karni, you've competed in two par competed in two Paralymipc games, what is your view on that. I would not like to see them put together. Simply because I think for those two those two weeks of a Paralymipc's life, it's our chance to feel like the majority and to the majority and to shine and for the first time, especially for the teenagers of the team, it's the first time they feel like part of the crowd. They can feel popular, they can flirt, they can do all those things that they don't do at school for the first time and feel gentlemen and fast and fit. I would like it to remain separate so they do feel like the star for those two weeks. We jokingly call the Olympics the dress rehearsal anyway and we are the main event. I guess you've got an athlete like Usain Bolt, he if they were joined together, he would totally overshadow the Olympic Parks. With swimming classes, we have got 14 classes. There would be have to be 14 raises before Michael Phelps, lodge isly it would be very difficult and I think that people would be most disadvantaged would be the most disabled athletes. Certainly Graeme, many would argue that's a good thing that you would be sitting there watching the Paralympians compete. I think it's a good thing. And look, I take Karni's point to an Ex territory and Kurt fernly tweeted the other day that he was the other day that he was enjoying just being in the dining haul with all the important Olympics and not having the usual stares and look and Karni and I are used to getting every day. I understand that point. But someone week Matt cow dri, in relative terms is an ununknown in Australian swimming but he has probably God more medals than Phelps, has. We have got world class athletes who are not being shown to the greatest extent possible they are in the Paralymipcs rather than the oips. the greatest extent possible because

than the oip Olympics. I would like to see those Guys profiled. What should be celebrating is not the fact, isn't that wonderful people do to see those Guys profiled. What we

that despite their disability, should be celebrating these Guys are incredibly good athletes. Like Karni that despite their disability, we

and like many others. I must say, Graeme, watching the opening ceremony of the Paralymipcs the other day, which was an incredible spectacle and I thought a really beautiful event, the focus was on disability I suppose as just a part of life and a potentially you know, really attractive and empowering part of life and you might not get that focus if you rolled them into one. Well, look, Well, look, I being not sure of that. You are right that that's where the focus needs to be. Disability is part of our life. It's 20% of the Australian population. It's everyone It's 20% of the Australian population. Everywhere. I think if you saw events taking place with people with disability next to people without disability, that that would reinforce that point. I suppose we will never know until we try. The fantastic thing about the Paralymipcs is you know what, I was listening to interviews this morning and the stadiums and places where the events are being held, the tickets are harder to get in London for the Paralymipcs than they were for the Olympics. Do you think we will ever see them merge together. I really hope not. I am all for interest graix, when I was at school, out I could keep up in the magistrates class or the English class, integration works fantastically at school when it comes to mind, with a physical disability, when I am in a assist wheelchair, on sports day, I would feel slow. I would have to get disability, when I am in a power

a able bodied person to push me over the grass but I would come home with the good try ribbons. So I just want those two weeks to be in a person of disability's life when they shine. They are the star, they are the main event. And they feel just like everybody else. And they can walk with their limps without feeling like they are walking with a limp so I would hate to take that way. We have had a lot of emails about this. Mick on wheels, who I assume is par pledgic, and he is in fact a great singer according to our great guitarist, Mick says he was in the Paralymipc squad for two years, we do it purely for passion and in pride in ourselves and in our fap family. There is no money in disabled sport. So our motivations are real and pure" in his words. Sue says personally says I would rather watch the Paralymipc, they look they are having loads more fun and someone is criticising them about watch the Paralymipc, they look like

how many medals they did or didn't win. Just by the way, we are doing very well. That's right, there is not a basis for criticism. Exactly. We will have to leave it there.

The report from US firm Variant Perception says when the mining boom tails off, we'll be staring recession in the face. So, are we really on the brink? To find out, we're joined in London by Claus Vistesen from Variant Perception and our own finance guru, David Koch. First to you, Claus. What's the basis for your negative outlook? Well, in so many words, Australia has too much debt. There is too much debt in the household sector, in terms of mortgage debt and the banks has too much Ex per tall debt. Australia really has been driven by -- external debt. Australia has been driven by strong growth in China and a strong car lated mining boom to that. If you have built mining capacity relative to a Chinese economy growing at 10% economy growing at 10%, if the Chinese economy slows to, let's say 6 or 7% structurally, you have a problem so our call basically on the Australian economy is that the current trend will weaken. That will happen because it's supposed to happen in the sense that when you have an competitive advantage which dissipates or which becomes less pronounced, the currency is likely to weaken or in a more technical terms, we talk about the terms of trade, this is to say that when the price of

price of your export falls price of your export falls relative to price of your export falls relative to the price of your imports as Australia experiencing at the moment. It's very likely to lead to currency weakness. Claus, Australian analysts have said that your report is nothing new and that comparisons to Europe are unfounded. What do you say to that? Well, certainly, what we report in our report it has been in the mainstream for a while. We have been writing about Australia for a while. In terms of the comparison with Europe, Australia is not necessarily Europe. Australia has its own central bank. Australia can act to extend for example, Spain and Ireland can't. But consider this point, before the crisis in Ireland and Spain, everybody talked about the fact that government debt in these two countries were sound. Government debt in in Australia is sound. But when you have a big banking sector that might get into trouble, the government will tend to assume liabilities, that's when you get into trouble and that's with when the central bank is likely to have to provide liquidity to the banks and also reduce interest rates which will lead to a weaker currency. Kochie, a lot of the Australian banking experts were saying this week, when the mining boom does tail off a bit, that the other sectors of the economy, of the two speed economy, will get up to speed and fill the void. Do you think there is fire to this smoke that is being talked about Definitely I actually think we are at a bit of a tipping point. I am pretty nervous about the next couple of months because I think a lot of Australian politicians, a lot of Australian economists are tend to be looking at Australia a bit like Alice through the looking Glass. It's a bit too roes rosy. He is right with commodities with China. We are starting to see it even now. There was one night during the week, where the iron ore price fell 7% where the iron ore price fell 7%. That's our biggest export. It's down over 50% since this time last year. Wool has taken a battering. All of these commodities aimed at China. Now, clause's point, it's the property market that's the big issue. Of our five major capital city, all five are in the top ten most expensive property markets in the world. That's mainly because property across the rest of the world has dropped so much. What is a bit after cushion to those property prices from actually crashing deeply, is the fact there seems to be a shortage of property and also, there is a lack of construction. have just had these new figureness the last week as well saying there is a lack of construction. We

dwelling constructions and finance approvals are really low. So there is not much coming in the pipeline. That will That will probably be good for prices but he makes some good point which we should actually be taking onboard because the boom is not going to be booming to the extent over the next year or two and I am a bit nervous that we're - that we're being lure food a false sense being lure food a false being lure food a being lure food being lure being lure into a false sense of security? What can Australians do in the next couple of years. See, Claus's big point is it's not government debt that's the problem. It's our debts, ourselves as individual, the size of our mortgage. Yes, we are reducing the balances of our credit cards and our credit card transaction, we have to do it more. We have to cut our debt and live within our means. I think that's the big message. It's not grandfinalist debt that's the problem. It's our debt and we can do something about it. Thank you for joining thus morning, do you agree with Kochie that the reduction is in personal debt will be a big part of solving this potential problem. Yes, absolutely. I would also point to the fact that your flexion to the fact that your flexible. You have your own independent central bank and a government sector and you have a fiscal situation which looks sustainable. It's a 67 more flexible situation in Australia than in Europe. Our call is again, that all the policy tools that will be necessary in Australia will lead to a weaker a weaker currency. Thank you so much for that. Thank you for getting up for us this morning, Kochie. Not a problem at all. News time now. Here's Jess. Australian forces are leading a man-hunt for the rogue Afghan soldier that killed three Aussies and injured two others at an army patrol base. While the names of the three have been withheld, the nation is also mourning two commandos, Lance Corporal Mervyn McDonald and Private Nathanael Galagher who were killed in a helicopter crash. The Government says Australia is committed to staying in Afghanistan. Tsunami warnings in the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan and Papua New Guinea have been cancelled after a large undersea earthquake. One person was killed when the 7.6 magnitude quake rocked the Philippines. It flattened at least one home and cut power to thousands of locals. Ongoing protests at the Grocon site in Melbourne are expected to be scaled back this weekend. The CFMEU says it will wind back its presence but may resume the blockade next week. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not going to stand by and let the law in Victoria be trashed by a militant union leadership. The bill for policing the site has already topped $2 million. A woman has been extradited from Italy to face charges over the murder of two Sydney brothers three years ago. The 53-year-old was originally arrested in July.
